HP/Compaq :: Enabling AHCI On HDX16t

Apr 18, 2009

I am trying to enable AHCI on my HDX16t so that I can get the most out of my intel SSD X25-M.

I plan to do a default system restore by using the "Clean Vista install WITH NO ACTIVATION" thread with an original vista CD.

1) how to enable this?

2) Is it enabled by default?

3) And if so, how can I tell?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Windows Blue Screen After Enabling AHCI In System Bios Not Resolved By Making Registry Change

Dec 21, 2012

Looking at fitting an SSD which needs AHCI.  So I looked on microsoft and saw registry edit which I've done. Then I  changed to AHCI in BIOS and get BSOD so set it back. Also I see that there are problems with Smsung Pro, does any problems with Samsung evo ? Why mSATA is not recommended for boot disk and only for cache ?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16T: Fan Always On

Apr 20, 2009

Have anyone notice this: The HDX16t will run the fan if the power plug is plugged in and will do so until you hit 100% on your battery meter.

I went into the BIOS to disable "Enable Fan Always On." And yes, when ever my notebook is not connected to power, the fan is OFF. But as soon as I plug in the power chord, back it turns on. While charging, as soon as I pull the chord (even though the battery hasn't met 100%), the fan turns off.

And another question, my HDX16t has this high pitch noise that you can hear. It's sort of like that same issue back with the hold dv6000t models.

How do I disable that, or remove that noise. And no, its not coming from my SSD or my Cd drive.

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX16t: Return

Jul 23, 2009

i ordered an HDX16t for college recently, and I realized I didn't order it with the backlit keyboard I wanted.. yeah i was dumb but college is still a month away so when it arrives, would it be free for me to return it ?? i also used a coupon code NBZ2897 which gives $250 off.. so when the laptop comes the coupon will be expired. does that mean i have to pay that extra? or can i just return it and just pay the extra $50 for the backlit keyboard, whether a backlit keyboard is worth all this trouble are welcome too haha i mean i dont gota look at the keyboard when i type but i still think having 1 would be nice

HP/Compaq :: How Upgradeable Is The HDX16t?

Jun 6, 2009

How many hard drives can be placed in it at one time?DDR2 or DDR3 RAM?CPU upgrades possible (quad in the future?)

I'm looking into a college notebook that has great specs. I know it seems a little on the big side, but I think I can manage. Usually college students don't take laptops to class all the time, right?

HP/Compaq :: Firewire HDX16t

Sep 16, 2009

I'm having a problem connecting my video camera to my HDX. The port itself seems to work as I was able to connect my external hard drive to it and it was found.

It's not the camera as I hooked it up to a different PC's firewire port and it was found. Not the cable either.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Owners

Jan 6, 2009

Other then HDX what else did you consider and why?

Other then the HD screen and 5.1 sound what other features sold you on the HDX? What was unique about this unit that sold you on the HDX?

Did you get Blu-Ray?

I was considering the HDX16t, now looking at the ASUS N50Vn-B1b. It is not a 16" screen and is more of a traditional laptop, however it appears to have superior components for a far better price after today's HP price increases.

I spent a lot of time making my decision, I really hate to change direction at this point, but can't justify the new pricing and supporting HP poor marketing decisions.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Or DV6t For Gaming

Mar 19, 2009

Buying a new laptop soon... choices are a HDX16t (P8400 and Nvidia 9600M GT 512MB) or a DV6t (T6400 and ATi HD 4650 1GB). I'm just looking to play Everquest 2, and even though it's a 2004 release, it's pretty intensive. So I'm wondering if I should deal with the slower CPU and slightly better GPU or vice versa?

HP/Compaq :: Hdx16t Upgrade To Windows 7

Oct 28, 2009

I just upgraded to Windows 7, downloaded the drives off HP website and most everything is working great if not better. I've got 4 items under device manager (3 base system devices and 1 unknown device) that don't have drivers. I'm not sure exactly what those are. Quick launch works except for the base/treble, and ql volume works, but doesn't show up on screen. Other than that I haven't noticed anything else amiss.

HP/Compaq :: Install Windows 7 On HDX16T

Jan 14, 2009

I just tried doing this a couple days ago and at first it was working perfectly. About a day later when I came home from work and turned it on, it took about 3 minutes to load and I got all kinds of errors. Aero Glass was disabled, it told me that it couldn't initialize the "Windows Notification Service service", and all other manner of problems existed. I tried doing a system restore to a configuration that was about a day older, and that seemed to work the rest of the night. When I came home again the next day and started it up, the same problems were back.

I'm ready to do another reformat and reinstall, but I'm curious how everyone else is doing this (successfully). The method I used last time was to just let it install drivers for everything it found, then supplement what it couldn't find with drivers off the HP website. Unfortunately there are about 20 different HDX16 configs on there, so I'm not sure if I got the right one. Are the drivers different among them?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Vs HDv6t Vs Studio XPS 16

Mar 21, 2009

the HDX16t. There is a 25% coupon going on right now, and I'm really thinking about pulling the trigger. But I thought I'd ask here, to HP owners, if there is a better choice.

Is the HDv6t a better buy than the HDX? I want roughly a 15.4" screen, but I don't mind a 16". I do want a 1920x1080 resolution, and I am looking for performance with some graphic ability (I am interested in the 1GB video card that HP offers with the HDX16).

Lastly, does the RGBLED screen that the Dell Studio XPS16 make it that much better than the HDX? I've been told that it's a decided advantage to Dell, but I'm not sure how.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t 1366x768 Vs. 1920x1200 Res

Mar 30, 2009

HDX16t and I'm having issues deciding between different models.

The difference in the screen resolution would cost me around $100. I would never really use the 1920x1200 for gaming, but it would come in handy while doing homework with multiple windows.

I currently have a DV9500 and a DV5. The DV9500's 1440x900 is excellent for me and I would see no reason to go above that resolution. However, the DV5's 1280x800 is just too small for me (almost even for internet browsing). It just doesn't seem like the 1366x768 would be much different. So for those who have the lower res HDX16t model, would you upgrade to the larger resolution if you had the chance or are you happy with your current setup?

HP/Compaq :: Terrible WEI Score On HDX16T

Jan 12, 2009

Scored a 3.0 on the WEI with the following scores:

Processor: 5.7
RAM: 5.5
Graphics: 4.8
Gaming Graphics: 4.9
Primary Hard Disk: 3.0

Obviously most of it looks right except the hard disk. I have the 320 GB 5400 RPM HD that came with the HDX16T. Yesterday I installed Windows 7 Beta and I tried to install all of the drivers from the HP website (except I pulled the latest Nvidia drivers straight from their site instead).

I don't recall seeing a driver for the hard disk, but windows seemed to recognize it.

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX16T- Locking Computer

Sep 10, 2009

I'm in college right now and one day I lowered my screen as to not to tmpt my roommate into looking at my windows and stuff. I went to take a shower, came back, and my screen was in a viewing position. The only reason i didn't close it was because I have some stuff I'd like to get continuous updates on on my computer. I was wondering if there was a way to basically lock the computer, without really shutting it off or preventing it from doing it's thing as it does normally. I'd like to be able to unlock it with a fingerprint scan. My laptop is an HP HDX16T.

Remember i don't want to put it to sleep or anything, just to lock it to prevent anyone from actually using it, like locks the mouse, the keyboard and stuff.

HP/Compaq :: 130M Gt HDX16T Vs DV6T 230M GT

Oct 18, 2009

ordered a HDX 16T when it was on discount for the 850 for 1920x1200 screen, 7450 2.1 ghz process, 4 gig ram, geforce 130M GT card.

Now the I7 dv6t is there with the 230M GT, no backlit keyboard or blueray or HD screen but...

For video gaming will the 230GT be a huge improvement?

What would you guys do? Opinions?

I can get the dv6t with 25% back by 12 midnight

HP/Compaq :: Flush Screen Vs Infinity On HDX16t

Mar 26, 2009

I'm looking to buy an HDX16t. I have to buy refurbished due to funds, but there is a 90 day warranty so I can send it in if there's anything wrong (fingers crossed). However, there's a $50 difference between two models.The differences are 3GB vs 4GB memory, 250GB vs 320GB HDD, and then an interesting "16.0" WXGA High Definition Ultra-wide Flush Glass Display (1366×768)" vs "16" Diagonal High Definition HP Ultra Brightview Infinity Display (1366×768)". These descriptions come from the same website. Would I be correct in saying that HP never offered anything less than the Ultra Brightview Infinity display on their HDX16t models, and that these two monitors are the same?

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX16t- Can I Decrease The Screen Resolution

Feb 2, 2009

I'm considering getting an HP HDX16t.

Not sure whether the highest resolution will be too small for my liking -- if I get the 1920x1080 screen can I decrease the resolution without any problems if it turns out I don't like the highest resolution?

HP/Compaq :: IDT Audio Crackles & Pops On HDX16t

Aug 30, 2009

Got this brand new notebook the other day. LOVE IT however I noticed when a web site is loading or a song is just playing and I'm doing nothing the audio will hiss, pop, or hiccup.

I also stopped the IDT service from loading when windows starts but this still persists. Gonna try just using the vista drivers. My specs are:

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Monitor Makes Noise

May 4, 2009

This thread will be very exclusive to those who may have an SSD in their HDX16T.

Particularly and Intel SSD X25-M.

Ever since I've got the intel SSD this HDX16t monster is DAMN quiet. And I mean not even whisper quite, its like the notebook is NOT-ON-quite.

That's how dead silent this notebook really is.

The thing/issue is that I began to notice that the monitor makes this constant buzz when it's on. And it only get louder when the brightness goes up.

It's not very loud at all. You'd have to put your ear about 3 inches away in order to hear it. But the fact that it does.

However, I would of never been able to hear the monitor noise with a regular HDD and I'd be totally fine with that. A regular HDD is way to loud now that I've been on SSD for a while.

But the fact that I can hear it makes it weird.

I can almost be sure that if you do not have an SSD, you'd not be able to hear what I am talking about. If you can hear it with a regular HDD, then your monitor must be SUPER loud.

Check back with me to see if you can hear this noise if any of youSSD users on the HDX16T out there.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t 9600M GT Video Driver & Overclocking

Jan 1, 2009

what video drivers are working for other owners of the HDX16t.

I'm currently using the 179.04 driver from HP and have managed to overlcock it (see specs in sig below) by using RivaTuner 2.22 and following the advice in this thread HP DV5T 9600M GT Overclocking Guide

This yielded 5581 3DMarks and raised my WEI Gaphics score to 5.9 and Gaming Graphics to 5.5.

However, my experience with trying later drivers has not been stable.

What driver is working for you?

HP/Compaq ::HDX16t - Watching Bluray On External TV Via HDMI

Nov 10, 2009

i have an HDX16t w/ bluray drive and i would usually watch blurays thru it. i would connect the laptop to my 42" 1080p LCD and watch. the first few times i did this, everything was fine. the sound and picture were going thru w/ no problems. i also just use the HP Media Center player when i watch so i can use the remote (which actually doesnt work great...not all the buttons work...but that's another story...)

now the other night, i went to put in another bluray and watch it using the HP Media Center but as it loaded the disc, i get a message saying that i "cannot play the movie in the current resolution". i was thinking this might be an HDCP issue but how can that be if it worked before? so i put in a bluray i had previously watched w/ this method and the same message popped up. i tried rebooting the laptop and also unplugging the TV to maybe "reset" the HDMI port. still got the same message when trying to play.

HP/Compaq :: Enabling Write Caching On Western Digital Scorpio HD

Jan 6, 2009

I have an HP DV2700 laptop (core 2 duo T5450 @1.66Ghz, 2GB of ram with vista home premium 32-bit).

I have a Western digital scorpio 250GB HD at 5400 rpm (WDC WD2500BEVS) and I am having some trouble enabling the write catching (and in extension, advanced performance mode.) I have tried accessing device manager and selecting 'enable write caching on the disk' however the policy does not persist once i apply the change. Despite my disappointment, this was to be expected since the comment 'this device does not allow its write cache setting to be modified' can be seen underneath the option. Being a tweaker of sorts with regards to vista, I was certain there is a way to allow such modifications to take place.

As an aside, I wanted to know whether enabling these policies would decrease spin up time? More specifically, decrease the amount of heat emitted from the hard drive. Of those who own DV laptops, this is an understandable request, seeing as the base of the laptop, under stress, becomes uncomfortably hot.
